of the senate and the state of hawaii as long as history is written. his place in the history books will not fade. as the second-longest serving senator in our history, senator inouye's career in congress spanned the life of hawaii's statehood, elected to the senate in 1962. only robert byrd served longer. senator inouye's tradition of service began long before he came to the united states senate. he was working as a medical volunteer when japanese warplanes attacked pearl harbor. he was just a boy, a teenager. from the time he was just a kid, he wanted to be a doctor, a medical doctor, but a different fate awaited dan inouye. after the attack, as we all know too well, japanese americans were deemed enemy aliens and were therefore not subject to the draft. in spite of that, in spite of the humiliation, more than 110,000 people of japanese ancestry were imprisoned in american internment camps. i have seen the pictures, we have heard the stories. they were in prison. yet dan inouye and other japanese americans, in spite of the unfair designation of being an enemy alien, volunteered to

very good so far. we know that the president obama, on the way back from hawaii, worked the phones a bit, talking to the top four congressional leaders. speaker boehner, nancy pelosi, mitch mcconnell, and harry reid. earlier today, the senate majority leader sounded frustrated with the republicans in congress. >> nothing can move forward unless speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell are willing to come up with a bipartisan plan to participate. speaker boehner is unwilling to negotiate. we have not heard a word since neither mcconnell. nothing has happened. >> i should note that senator reid was due for a news conference later this afternoon. that has since been canceled. perhaps the senate majority leader has decided to do his talking behind closed doors and hammer out a deal. greg: filled with metaphors, no doubt. what a republican saying about the status of the fiscal cliff negotiations? reporter: they have been pretty quiet so far. we know the speaker of the house and the republican leadership team in the house is due for a conference call with members that are still back in their

, a terrifying attack in hawaii, 61-year-old tom kennedy was snorkling when a couple of his friends, about 200 yards off shore in maui, when that shark moved in, clamping down on his left leg. he was actually able to break free and his friends helped him to shore and lifeguards treated him before he was rushed to the hospital and now, tom says he's trying to figure out what kind of shark bit him. >> based on my estimate of the size of the head, the coloration, and the shape, and i'm certainly not an expert, but his guess near is, it was a tiger shark perhaps. >> jamie: tom, does it matter? you survived the shark attack. he's lucky to be alive and lifeguards briefly closed that stretch of beach as the shark remains at bay and there are four shark attacks in hawaii since october. be careful out there, kelly. >> kelly: well, it's not about a shark, but it is about a cliff, the looming so-called fiscal cliff would trigger across the board tax hikes and spending cuts if no deal is reached. but what would happen to home values, if certain tax benefits disappear? four are drastically cut. and carolyn
